A £5m mansion in Chiswick, west London – which previously belonged to TV presenter Ant McPartlin – has been damaged by fire.
Six fire engines and around 40 firefighters tackled the blaze in Grove Park Gardens, which was reported to London Fire Brigade at 9.46.

The fire was brought under control just before lunchtime and crews remained at the scene into the afternoon.
The London Fire Brigade confirmed to Sky News that no injuries were reported and that the cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
